Sky-High Inspiration: Amelia Earhart Quotes

Amelia Earhart was a courageous female aviator who soared into the hearts of millions. Like her flights, her words broke barriers and continue to inspire generations long after her mysterious disappearance. These are some of my favorite Amelia Earhart quotes.

When most people think of Amelia Earhart, the vision of a grinning, fearless aviatrix, ready to conquer the skies, comes to mind. But Amelia was more than a pioneer in the field of aviation. She was a beacon of inspiration, a symbol of tenacity, and a voice of empowerment — especially for women in male-dominated fields.

Amelia grew up under the wide, open skies of Northeastern Kansas. It was in Sunflower State, that Amelia transformed from a curious girl into a groundbreaking aviator, later celebrated as the First Lady of Flight. The endless Kansas horizons likely sparked her imagination, fueling her dreams to not just gaze at the sky, but to soar through it.

This collection of Amelia Earhart quotes captures the essence of her brave and adventurous spirit. Her words spotlight the accomplishments of a woman who dared to dream in a time when the sky was considered the ultimate limit. From her thoughts on courage to her musings on the role of women in society, each quote is a window into Amelia’s soul. As you read, imagine the world through her eyes — a world where challenges are invitations to greatness, and the unknown is just an adventure waiting to be embraced.

Quotes by Amelia Earhart About Achievement

Amelia is one of the most famous American pilots. She was the 16th woman in the world to be issued a pilot’s license when hers was issued in 1923. With it, she was the  first person to fly solo and nonstop across the United States, and the first female pilot to fly solo and nonstop across the Atlantic. And, while one of the best known facts about England is that only a 21-mile sliver of ocean water separates England from France, flying across the Atlantic Ocean from Newfoundland, Canada, to Londonderry, Northern Ireland, is a much bigger undertaking.

For Amelia Earhart, achievement was not just about setting records and reaching destinations. It was also about preparation and perseverance. These quotes reflect her philosophy on the importance of action, determination, and the relentless pursuit of goals. They serve as a reminder that true accomplishment lies in the courage to start and the tenacity to continue.

“In my life, I had come to realize that, when things were going very well, indeed, it was just the time to anticipate trouble.

— Amelia Earhart

“Never interrupt someone doing something you said couldn’t be done.”
— Amelia Earhart

— Amelia Earhart

“Never do things others can do and will do, if there are things others cannot do or will not do.”

Amelia Earhart Quotes About Women

At a time when women didn’t wear trousers, Amelia Earhart pulled on men’s military-issue chinos and a leather flight jacket and took to the skies. As an advocate for women, these quotes about women’s roles and capabilities are as much an inspiration for women today as they were in Amelia’s time. Her words highlight the challenges faced by women and her vision for a world where gender does not define one’s abilities or opportunities. 

“One of my favorite phobias is that girls, especially those whose tastes aren’t routine, often don’t get a fair break… It has come down through the generations, an inheritance of age-old customs, which produced the corollary that women are bred to timidity.”
— Amelia Earhart

“The woman who can create her own job is the woman who will win fame and fortune.”

“Women must try to do things as men have tried. When they fail, their failure must be but a challenge to others.”

— Amelia Earhart

“Perhaps I have something of a chip on my shoulder when it comes to modern feminine education. Often youngsters are sadly miscast. I have known girls who should be tinkering with mechanical things instead of making dresses, and boys who would do better at cooking than engineering.”

“Flying may not be all plain sailing, but the fun of it is worth the price.”
— Amelia Earhart

“Not much more than a month ago, I was on the other shore of the Pacific, looking westward. This evening, I looked eastward over the Pacific.
